Pumpkin Spinach & Salmon Porridge 金瓜菠菜三文鱼粥

Made this very comforting Pumpkin Spinach and salmon porridge sometime back and thought it would be good to share here too. I quite like this porridge because it’s very versatile and healthy. Eliminate the salmon and you will get a vegan dish. Eliminate the ginger and you have a kids’ friendly meal. ⁣⁣I am none of the above so I have everything all in.

It’s also a very delicious and healthy porridge that uses very minimal seasoning as the pumpkin provides for the sweetness of the dish whilst spinach add to the green-ness alongside with healthy salmon cubes. The colour of this dish is very brilliant too and makes it look very appetising.

Saw on Instagram some others have tried it too and agree that it was a yummylicious dish indeed too. And it’s pretty effortless too, other than the constant stirring needed if you are cooking it via a gas stove.
Well spinach and salmon are quite my favourite foods too, hence anything with them are just excellent to me. In fact when it comes to home cooked meals, simple and comforting dishes like such are very much preferred and I could just have them as often as I can without getting tired !
And so, here’s the really fuss free and noob friendly recipe to share ! Hope you enjoy it too !!
